The Greeting Farm 3rd Annual Customer Blog HOP

Warning "Lots of Pictures"

 Hi Everyone... Sooo Happy for today.. Because it's  "The Greeting Farm 3rd Annual Customer Blog HOP!!>>>>>>Please make sure you start at TGF for the "full list" of blogs for our hop.
As I ponder on what to maker for my DD's class for her last day of school.. I saw some awesome "inspiration" from all the Talented ladies of both "The Greeting Farm "Farmers" as well as my Talented team over at The Farm Fresh Challenges Blog;  But mostly from ALL of you; that participate in our weekly and monthly challenges. I say it again' "You all ROCK!!!!!
I Decided to make these very "Cute and easy" Treat Bags with several stamp images from The Greeting Farm.
 I started with a 4x6 Clear cello bag. filled them with some goodies. (if you look closely at the Granola bar you will see some decorative green tape.. that's because they are from Halloween... Hey a group of 6 yr old don't mind hehehe.
Cut my Card stock at 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. folded in half. I added some strips of DP and stamped with the Christmas Tree from "Cheeky Christmas" and Sentiments from "Keep Cozy" Set... Added lots of stickles to the Christmas Tree, but it's hard to see from here.
 What was so great about these where that I "ONLY" used my scraps of DP to decorate my white card stock.I only had to make 20 of them which  really took me no time to finish them all.. .

This Next one is the Card I made for her Teacher.
" A Little Snow Man Soup"
 I made this super cute and easy Hot Cocoa Holder for her Teacher.. Using one of the Snowman (colored with Prisma and OMS)  from the "Keep Cozy" stamp set. I am just in LOVE with this set.. I can use all of them "over and over" again.
 Here is the inside with a packet of Hot Cocoa, packet of  marsh mellow and a little candy cane. If you would like to purchase this "template and many more you can find them all "here".
I found this " Snowman Soup Poem" on line and just printed it out.. Sorry about the bad image.

Wanted to show how you can make some "Great, fun and easy" projects using your "Greeting Farm" stamps. 
Please make sure that you leave a "comment" on every one's post for your chance to win an Prize. If you get lost along the way just head back to The Greeting Farm blog".

12 Days of Christmas Day 1 (a day late)

 Hello everyone.. I finally had a day to my self. (and it was Wonderful..The house was still full and on top of that we have family over still as I am posting this. But I just worked right thru it :0)). I am still working on my Christmas cards.So I wanted to get caught up with my 12 Days of Christmas Cards series.. I did not get a chance to post my Day one card..

I just love La La Land Carft stamps.. Marci and Luka are just the cutest.. So when I saw "Angel Marci". I knew that I wanted her to use for my cards. She is just soo BEAUTIFUL..don't you agree??? She comes in both "Rubber" and Digi.. She is a  "digi"!!!

 I colored her up with my Prisma Pencils..and my Skaura Star dust pen. Her wings and Halo are just too cute to me. so I added star dust to those as well..
 Was soo Happy to get my PTI package in the mail today.. I ran out of some of my Holiday card stock colors and did not want to make a trip to Michael's.. Where as for my Card stock basis... Nothings better than PTI. So when I got my package it saved me from going out and I was able to try out my new Stamp set. My card is measured at 5 x 4 1/4. DP is what I got at the end of last year from "Michael's. Deja Views12 x 12 paper pack.. I got it in a grab bag for $2.00 with some other GREAT items....It's Deja Veiws "Fair Isle Christmas" I just love the paper and because it had soo much going on already..   I did not want to add any thing extra.. So I just added some "Flourish Swirls from Reflection .. (those I did get from Michael's) and added two snow flakes.

Farm Fresh Friday #9 and Day 2

Hello everyone.. Well as we all know it's December 2, WOW!! only 23 more days until Christmas.. I said that I would start off the month with my own "12 days of Christmas" post.. but as usual I am " a day late and a dollar shot".. (Meaning that I am always running behind.. So please don't be fooled by the "Post". This card is meant to be day 2 of my 12 day posting.
As you can see I combine  two challenges. As it is Friday and that means that it is time for our FFF SPY Day challenge. And it's my week to host the challenge.. I scanned the SCS gallery and came across a very sweet layout, and so I knew that I wanted to use it.
I just love the colors on this card.

For my Image I used W.S. ViVi She is such a cute little elf. As you can see she is hard at work getting all the gifts ready for "you know who"..  I thought she would look so beautiful with "green" hair. 
Here is my card I used DP from Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas.. I really love this paper pack and I am going to use it for a lot of my cards.I made my a 5x 51/2 card so that I can have enough room for my square pattern. The Sentiment is from the "Clear Christmas" set.. My little ornament if from "Reflection" from Micheal's.  Now you know I had to add my "stickles and sparkle to Ms. ViVi.. So for her fur and stockings I added lots of  Stickles. For her bell I used my Sakura Star dust pen. And I finished it off with some Liquid Pearls from Ranger.. I started off  "paper piercing"  around the edges but changed my that's why the top few are a little smudge. :0).

 I know that we all still have some "Holiday" cards to finish up or may be something just for fun, either way I would love for you all to play along.. You will have One week to add your "link to Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post on the FFC blog Or you can add your project to TGF gallery or to SCC using the "keyword" TGFFF09.
